November Cross Round-Up (The Men’s Side)

with 2 comments

So here it is the end of November. The UTCX Series is winding up and winter may be arriving shortly. November brought us the Boulder Cup, Cutthroat Cross, and the Utah State Championship Races. The Boulder Cup introduced us to the joys of sand. Deep clinging sand.

During November we were shown that indeed bikes were in fact, made to be air-bourne.

Barriers

leave a comment »

In  a previous episode of the Marx, we discussed barriers.  The proper technique was shown and we moved on to other subjects.  After the pilgrimage to The Peoples Republic of Boulder, we have decided to revisit this topic.  It’s  short and sweet.  I believe 4 or 5 pictures will convey our thoughts…….

Kelli Emmett (Giant) Boulder Cup

 

Tim Johnson (Cannondale/CXWorld) Boulder Cup

These should be sufficient to demonstrate a pattern…….  Simple you say.  What’s the point.  It’s really a beautiful thing to see.  Then along comes a maverick. His name? Adam Snyder and he rides for Jamis. He’s got another idea, he has a better approach……

Yes he landed it… The second time around he cleared both barriers much to the enjoyment of the large crowd.

More pictures of the Boulder Cup are at Pbase.
